NU/1960 Supply and Installation of a Randomisation System
Main contract details
NCTU works in a demanding and constantly evolving ethical, legal, regulatory and scientific landscape, across multiple countries. We seek opportunities for faster, more efficient, cost effective, and better research. NCTU requires systems that ensures robust trial design are conducted in line with MHRA and other legislated regulatory requirements that stand up to international scrutiny. The systems(s) must be suitable for use in academic trials units and ensure they operate in a way which is complaint with applicable legislation. The systems should combine excellent functionality with customisability that will also require the set-up time of trials to be minimised without impacting on staff time needed to develop, test, and deploy trials and studies within the system. Staff move between locations to work, including from NHS Trusts and from home, and thus secure access from any location is needed to both build and manage the systems.
The scope is for the supply a Clinical Data Randomisation System to be used by all members of the NCTU, and by trial teams across multiple clinical sites, nationally and globally. The requirements are for established cloud-based, off the shelf solutions which are in use within clinical trial environments. The systems must be accessed via a web-based interface. The systems must have different user profiles to support the setting up, management and data removal for statistical analysis.
